Pretty in Pink.....

By Mobieus
My very first portrait taken with my new studio lightsGrin. This little darling is the daughter of a good friend who kindly volunteered to be my first model, a little cutie she posed for me in her new "fairy dress". I am very pleased with it, though I am aware that there will be improvements that will develop with time and experience. One of these is I need a light meter to speed up and make more accurate my estimations of the correct aperture.

Constructive feedback appreciated, thanks for looking.

I think this is a lovely first attempt. Her expression is beautiful and that is vitally important. The leg sticking forward is distracting and once you notice it, it just grabs your attention. I love the almost water colour effect of the background. A lovely pleasing portrait.

Xpectphotography, thanks for your comments, I agree with the issue with the leg...hmmm, had not seen it in that light before this lol. In my defense this was not a posed shot Grin, but rather a snatched shot as a rather fractious 3yr old got bored with the whole thing. Will post a few others later of this little un.

Thanks once again.
